USAC Interactive Media Center

We believe in exploring culture through the senses. Whether it's through food, stories, or a beautiful photo, studying abroad is an astounding sensory experience and we want to share that with you.

We've created a variety of informative and fun interactive media projects for you to engage with. Peruse our international cookbook for your next family dinner, learn more about USAC and studying abroad in our Students Beyond Borders podcast, or add a little color to your cell phone or accolade to your online portfolio or resume with downloadable background images and badges.

Students Beyond Borders Podcast

Let us be your gateway to the world.

We've got more than 30 years of experience helping students’ study abroad and we're ready to share our insider knowledge with you.

The Global Kitchen Cookbook

The USAC cookbook, "The Global Kitchen," is an eye-catching and delicious collaboration with our Resident Directors and program staff. It features entrée, side dish, and dessert recipes from around the world and includes personal stories from our on-site teams.

Each recipe represents a significant dish in the host culture of its corresponding program location and celebrates one of everyone’s favorite aspects of study abroad: connecting with others through food. Flip through our cookbook and then share your recreation of these recipes with us on social media @studyabroadusac and #CookingWithUSAC.

Bon Appétit!
